Sex and the City

I’m feeling a little crappy today (I really, really hope this doesn’t turn into anything), so instead of a deep post, I thought I’d share my SATC thoughts.  Two things to keep in mind…one, I tend to get caught up in all the hype around certain movies and then just end up sadly disappointed and two, I finally got around to finishing up the entire SATC series just about this time last year.

So based on those two key factors, I’m actually avoiding ALL talk, write ups, reviews, interviews, you name it.  I’m thinking that I’ll take myself to see it once we get back from the wedding in Jersey, so until then, I’ve got to do my best to avoid it all. Of course, my husband finds this amusing as I throw away whole sections of the local paper, turn the channel or radio station, and well, just walk away whenever I hear someone talking about the movie and the gossip.

It can happen.  I managed to make it YEARS without ever knowing how the series ended (same with Six Feet Under and the Sopranos – and I’ll eventually get around to finishing up both of those).  So I have faith that I can do this.

But why, why do they hype things up so damn much?  Two weeks before the damn movie is even due out and there’s already talk everywhere;  what they’re wearing, what the twist is, who did what, where can you get the same thing, blah, blah, blah.  Please people, let me just watch the movie without having it ruined by everyone else’s impressions and thoughts.  Don’t turn this into another Juno or Forrest Gump for me (both movies that I was so excited to see since everyone loved them, and was so sadly disappointed that they didn’t live up to the hype).

And now, I’m off to get my hair done….

    Going out to see it on Friday with one of my girlfriends and I’m pretty excited about it. Are you going to see it this weekend? We can compare the notes next week :o)

    Dawn – I’ve missed it as well so I’m pretty excited.  Which of course,  is just why I don’t want the hype to ruin it for me.

    Ivanhoe – I’ve decided to go see it tomorrow (Fri) during the day.  I figure that I’ll beat the crowds some and I’ll also beat the hype I’ve been avoiding 😉  We can compare notes!

    I know, right?  I’m hoping it’s not another Titanic for me.  My mom and I were just talking about how they’ve shown so much of the movie in the clips, it’s hard to not know how it turns out.  I’m going to the midnight showing tomorrow anyway, just can’t wait.  My addiction to SATC is almost as bad as my shoe addiction.  Wait, did  I mention I own a pair of Manolos SJP wore in SATC?
